Heat oven to 400°F. Rinse the tomatoes under running water. Cut in half. Spread on greased baking pan. Sprinkle oil (2 tablespoons), salt, pepper, and garlic powder on tomatoes. Stir to coat. Bake for 15-20 minutes. Prepare spinach and spaghetti as tomatoes bake. Slice spinach in strips, or thaw, drain, and pat dry the frozen spinach. Set aside.
